The museum was very interesting. They have many many items on display and explain the history of Romania using these items, maps and scale models. The only downside was there was no information in English (nor German) and there was a lady in one of the rooms listening to music, eating(?) and talking whilst she was there to take care... More

They had some wonderful displays in the Museum. It was amazing to see what could actually be made during that time period. Creativity at its best.

This museum is really interesting as you pass from the early history of the nation to the last years. It actually focuses on the wars and military methods but you see all the history in there. It seemed a little old, all the statues and models are a little "rusty" but still the museum is well organised and has an... More

Lack of labels in English, military vessels in the yard definitely require painting. However the exposition is rich enough covering Romanian war and military history from prehistoric times through medieval ages, WW1, WW2 and up to Cold War. Of interest: aviation display (in a distinct building) including space recovery capsule which brought the first and only Romanian astronaut from its... More
